Any driver that's in the market for a versatile and efficient two-row crossover or SUV is sure to have models like the 2021 Honda CR-V and 2021 Toyota RAV4 on their radar. After all, these two stalwarts of the compact CUV segment have gone head-to-head for top-selling honors for years. If you're shopping the 2021 class of crossovers, you'll surely want to take a closer look at what Honda and Toyota offer.
With their sterling reputations for quality and reliability, impressive fuel economy and utility, plus high sales figures to boot, you may feel that you can't go wrong picking either of these two models. While that may be somewhat true, one of these new CUVs for sale may be the better fit for you, your family and your lifestyle. You may also just prefer the design, layout, technology and overall feel of one model over the other.
Before you schedule any test drives, though, you're likely looking to narrow down your options. So, will it be the 2021 CR-V from Honda, or the 2021 Toyota RAV4? Let's review and compare these two popular vehicles to help you determine which may be your preferred option.
Here, we've compiled a detailed comparison of how the 2021 Toyota RAV4 stacks up against Honda's stellar new CR-V in key areas, like standard and available features, pricing, utility and more.
Remember to reach out to DCH Honda of Nanuet following this comparison review should you have questions about the new Honda CR-Vs for sale and how they match up with models from Toyota or other makes!
With its attractive starting MSRP of just $26,525, the 2021 Honda CR-V boasts a more competitive pricing structure than its chief rival, the Toyota RAV4. Toyota's 2021 RAV4 starts at $27,425, or hundreds of dollars more than a CR-V LX base trim.
Let's take a brief look at some of the many amenities that are standard on the 2021 Honda CR-V LX, features you won't find on the 2021 Toyota RAV4 LE. First, there is the CR-V's Easy Fold-Down 60/40 Split Rear Seatback, which folds nice and flat and helps this CUV top the Toyota in maximum cargo capacity.
Honda continues to impress with its standard safety features across its lineup of automobiles. The new CR-V boasts the automaker's innovative Multi-Angle Rearview Camera as standard equipment. With three distinct views -- normal, wide and top-down -- the CR-V's advanced standard camera technology is too much for the Toyota RAV4.
Other stellar standard features on Honda's 2021 CR-V include the full Honda Sensing® suite. This driver-assistive technology package includes the Honda-exclusive Collision Mitigation Braking System™, plus Adaptive Cruise Control and more. Toyota offers some similar systems on its RAV4, but its safety suite doesn't quite line up with what comes standard on every 2021 Honda CR-V.
The Honda CR-V's interior is a plush and premium environment where drivers and passengers alike won't mind spending extended time. That's because this highly rated Honda automobile boasts generous seating space for up to five adults, an automatic climate control system and plenty of high-end available amenities.
With 102.9 cubic feet of passenger space compared to just 98.9 cubic feet in the Toyota RAV4, the roomy new CR-V from Honda tops its rival on many fronts. You'll find a similarly lopsided comparison when you take a look at the maximum cargo volume of these rivals. The 2021 Toyota RAV4 affords just 69.8 cubic feet for cargo, while Honda's 2021 CR-V presents 75.8 cubic feet for your gear.
When you're looking for a spacious and upscale new crossover SUV that's offered with next-level features, count on the CR-V lineup from Honda.
Available cabin technology like a wireless phone charger, smartphone integration and a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™, complete with turn-by-turn directions, helps ensure a connected drive. You also won't find the Honda CR-V's available 9-speaker 330-watt premium audio system inside rivals like the 2021 Toyota RAV4.
Experience maximum comfort and driving enjoyment in a Honda crossover SUV when you select a new CR-V fitted with a leather-trimmed interior, heated steering wheel and ambient lighting.
Other premium features found within the 2021 Honda CR-V lineup include:
